These pumps incorporate extra thick ribbed cases to withstand the extreme pressures.– for the most aggressive industrial slurry pumping applications.5 times the design pressure. Orion series of heavy duty tunneling pumps HT Tunneling pumps are typically used in conjunction with large boring equipment. These pumps can be applied to any application that may encounter very large solids. The pump is specifically designed with a special casing and frame for a low-profile small footprint to fit into the confined spaces of a tunnel. The suction side of the pump is also opened up to accommodate large solid transfer. These pumps are specifically designed to transfer newly cut material from the face of the tunnel. Orion series of heavy duty gravel pumps HG Gravel pumps are specifically designed to pass large solids typically found in the sand and gravel industry. The HP casing can also be incorporated into applications that require longer wear life casings.

The ingenious design of the pump with no shaft seal makes it exceptionally service friendly and easy to install. The principle of operation is similar to that of hydrocyclone separation. Vertical tank pumps VT The VT Vertical Tank Pumps are designed for abrasive slurry service and feature simple maintenance and robust construction. Parts in different materials are fully interchangeable and can be combined for optimum life. free from pulsation caused by air blocking. tough and reliable. Other wear materials include synthetic rubbers and polyurethane. This results in a more efficient pumping and a smooth operation. Standard wear materials are in natural rubber or hard metal.– strong. where dry powder has to be mixed (and wetted) with water • Can also be used with cement in ready mixed concrete and for grouting Vertical froth pumps VF The VF Froth Pump has been designed to increase the pumpability of frothy slurries.

The wet ends are the same as those used in the standard Orion series of pumps. ineffective centrifugal seals and difficult maintenance.Wet end conversions – reduce your maintenance costs. The double adjustment feature permits optimum impeller adjustment on both gland and suction sides of the casing. with clearances that result in vastly improved performance and longer pump life. Features • Prolongs pump life significantly • Reduces maintenance costs • Simple two step impeller adjustment for total wear clearance without dismantling • Maintains optimum operating efficiency • Sizes range from 50 x 32 to 350 x 300 mm for Orion and up to 700 x 600 mm for Thomas. inconsistent performance. Duty point engineering is also available for the highest wear life potential improvement. Orion wet ends Metso can offer the Orion series pump hydraulics and shaft sealing options onto competitor’s pump frames and bearing assemblies. These conversions can help overcomes traditional slurry pump problems such as low hydraulic efficiency. 10 Slurry pump program . These conversions are typically installed into dredge and grinding mill discharge applications where wear rates are high and longer life is required. Metso has many standard hydraulic wet end designs that can move the duty point closer to the best efficiency line of the pump curve which will improve component wear life. Thomas wet ends The Thomas series hydraulics and shaft sealing options are available for conversion onto larger pumps. premature component failure. They are 100% interchangeable with other Metso pumps that may be operating in the same installation.
